I am not much of a fashionista but I do like watching ones 🙂 So, last night I had a great opportunity to visit one of the London Fashion Week shows. A big thanks to Margarita who made it possible. It was a real buzz going on there and despite the drizzle, which made me go and blow dry my hair couple of times, it was still exciting. Ok, so this post will be only about MY point of view and my impressions. All the official stuff can be easily found on Google 😉 Well, to be honest, I didn’t know how to behave at this kind of event, what to wear, what to bring.. but I was curious! So why not? My camera was with me and my famous 2-quid flash 🙂 I was secure. This time I was afraid to be late (remembering my first fail :)) so I came…three hours earlier :)) Also I wanted to look around, watch and learn. It took a while for me to find out where and what I had to wait for but…it was just a matter of time. So, in the middle of the Somerset House, that’s where all the official venues of London Fashion Week took place, I felt so little and a little lost but for sure – happy! And I was wondering what were all these people thinking at that moment. The models who posed by the wall, the others rushing somewhere, smoking, watching the big screen showing the re-watch of the last catwalk shows here, and those who came just to show off or just went by.. I like watching people. Especially the strangers.. I don’t have to communicate with them – they don’t have time for it, I can relax, watch and capture their moments. Maybe you’ll find yourself on a spot if you were there..
So I waited for my colleague Sart Photography there, the rain got heavier. I was soaking wet..and cold, but still..not long to go. When she came we were ready to go inside the catwalk building, watch the PPQ show where they presented their spring/summer 2014 collection. Umm.. I won’t try to please someone by telling that I know who they are.. I told you, I don’t know anything about fashion world! I just like colors, people and good times! 🙂 But of course.. I imagined this meant something big to someone and I respect it. I even got lucky to stand close to Ellie Goulding and realizing it later.. Beginner’s luck 😉 So, I was not surprised that to get into the catwalk show would not be so easy and we were unsure if we would get in or not until the last minute but luckily we got through and the show started in 5 minutes, lasted for 13 minutes (on the 13th of September! Friday :)) and we were asked to leave after 10 minutes 🙂 It’s so funny.. but really, sometimes you wait for something to happen for sooo long and when it happens you are not able to get it.. 🙂 This I learned earlier, that’s why I thank God for ALL my moments, waiting or not – it’s life! And it’s beautiful! Have a look 😉 You’ll find more photos on Facebook a bit later. Feel free to leave a comment. Sincerely yours..
